my openvpn connection failed on me, after a restart. it no longer connects to the vpn. the connections are still in the network manager. and the vpn files are still in the same folder. i get this error message:
Cannot import VPN Connection
The file 'vpn.conf' could not be read or does not contain recognized VPN connection information
Error: unknown error.
when i try to import the vpn configuration. didn't install nor update anything major before rebooting as far as i can remember. purging network-manager-gnome and reinstall didn't fix it.
i'm running ubuntu gnome 13.10 with the 3.13.2 kernel (due to haswell fixes) and gnome 3.10.1 which i upgraded to, by doing this: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-next sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
that is what differs on my setup from the default 13.10 install. as mentioned, i had it working perfectly, so weird that it failed me randomly.
any help and guidance is really appreciated here. i'm lost and frustrated, this is a fresh install that i invested quite some time, due to deja dup errors.
i get this error: openvpn --config ~/Downloads/vpn/vpn_linux.conf Options error: --ca fails with 'ca.crt': No such file or directory Options error: --cert fails with 'vpn.crt': No such file or directory Options error: --key fails with 'vpn.key': No such file or directory Options error: Please correct these errors. that is with a freshly downloaded copy of the vpn configuration. and the files mentioned are definitely in the same folder and do exist.
after doing: sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-next
i can connect to existing vpns again only. import still fails. also get error: "Unable to load VPN connection editor" when i view the vpn connection. something is broken :(
